Camp Gramma Day 1

Camp Gramma is underway! We headed to Hutchinson this morning in pouring rain the whole way with a winshield wiper that didn't seem to like my side of the windshield and with kids that asked 339 times "how much longer till we get there" so our 3 and half hour drive FELT all of six hours!

our 22 campers! my parents backyard is flooded right now, which is where the crew was supposed to be the garage has turned into the boys dorm complete with carpet padding. The girls are "roughing" it in the basement. The youngest two (raegan and hudson) are not sleeping with the rest of the group, they are with their mommy's...we need some sanity!

We went to a gym and a football field to play some games. The older kids had a great game of dodgeball going. we headed over to the football field then and all took our turns trying to kick a field goal. Susan and i had to borrow one of my mom's tennis shoes...i didn't make it, for the record...i know, so surprising. ha!
ethan giving it his best shot! he ran all the way around the track without stopping. i think he will sleep well tonight!
